New Pedestrian Zone Project
December 2, 2014 00:11


A new unusual pedestrian zone with an underground entry may appear near the “Borovitskaya” metro station.

The project has already been highly appraised by the Union of Moscow Architects. The authors of the idea, the architects Arseniy Khechinashvili and Andrei Stenyushkin, offer to dig a portion of Neglinka 300 meters long out from the ground.

They want to show the water catch enclosing the river to the world in the city centre - near Borovitskaya Square with the visit to Alexandrovsky Garden. The brick water catch will not be disassembled. But they will lay out walkways, stairs and a ventilation system leading to the water catch.

The insides of the water catch will be highlighted with different colors. In addition to conventional lamps the architects propose to establish a projector in the brick structure, which will make it possible to project any image on the wall.

For example, if the projector shows pictures with running red blood cells, the whole structure will seem a huge blood vessel. A walk through such underground trails will be interesting to those who want to feel like diggers and for archeology fans.

According to the authors of the idea, the excavation of the water catch containing the riverbed of Neglinka will open all the cultural layers up to the foundation of Moscow in1147. And one will be able to walk on the ancient land as well. For this purpose it is supposed to lay out the trails below the bottom of the water catch. And to prevent the structure’s collapse it will be strengthened with powerful beams.
